Japan - The land of the rising sun

Japan, the land of the rising sun is on everyone’s list, isn’t it? And that’ s right, because Japan has so much to offer.

And then there are Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the cities where the atomic bombs of 1945 caused a big drama. And then there is Nikko National Park, with its beautiful waterfalls and temples, or Okinawa, the bounty island where the temperature is always at least 20 degrees. Japan is very diverse…
